Nokia Australia just announced the Nokia N9 will be available in October and will be sold through Optus, Telstra, Vodafone plus all major retailers. The suggested price is AUD$799 before subsidies and taxes. Of course, this doesn’t help if you live elsewhere.
The retailers in Australia that will sell the Nokia N9 are Allphones, Big W, Crazy John’s, Dick Smith, JB Hi-Fi, Fone Zone, Harvey Norman, Leading Edge Telecoms, Network Communications, TeleChoice and Virgin Mobile.
“The N9 will be Nokia’s flagship device for 2011 with good reason, and we are thrilled to be delivering the N9 to our customers on Australia’s best value mobile plan range, Vodafone Infinite,” said Ross Parker, general manager of Devices and Pricing at Vodafone in the press release.
The Nokia N9 runs MeeGo with a user interface designed around the things people typically do the most – use apps, socialise and multitask. There are three homescreens, which are arranged in a carousel. Just swipe.
The Nokia N9 also comes with an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, wide-angle lens, HD video capture and large lens aperture for greater performance even in lowlight conditions. It is also NFC-enabled, which allows the user to share images and videos between devices by simply touching them together.
